I have recently come across several anti-male blogs. Some women who are sharing their perception of the male species. Aggression, violence, rape, murder, and other atrocities committed by those who share my gender are listed as common traits. My mind reels with thoughts on this one.
I firmly believe that we were put on this planet by a divine force. Call it God, Goddess, Deity, The Divine, Allah, Hashem, Hecate, Kali, Ashtaroth, Pazuzu, Chuck, whatever; some being with remarkable powers to create life from nothing.
In creating that world, it has structure and is full of many discernable patterns (some not so discernable). Among those patterns are forces. Forces that maintain a balance or equilibrium. When these forces are not in balance, things go wrong. Sheer forces build up, we get earthquakes and tsunamis. Electric charges build up, lightening strikes. Political power wielded without balance; people lose their voice or rights and are subject to the whims of those in power. This includes forces like love, lust, jealousy, fear, etc. These forces can be beautiful when they work to our advantage and harmful or deadly when they work against us.
Hate and anger are both natural forces. Like any other force, neither is designed to be the permanent standard. Another trait of forces are that they are not static. Being dynamic means there is a constant shifting, but the ultimate balance is still there.
I see these man-hating blogs, much like any other blog where the viewpoint becomes more important than any supporting information to that effect. I think poster children of the unbalanced include anyone who used the US vs. THEM thought process. Religious, political, social, or ideological divisions of this magnitude also lack the natural equilibrium to be supported.
that’s just my thought on it.
Here is the one that triggered the post…but it is not the only one I have seen.
